Cameron says UK may quit ECHR ‘to keep country safe’

[…] According to Cameron, the UK could start by scrapping the Human Rights Act and replacing it with a homemade Bill of Rights, so that when cases go to the ECHR there would be “a proper margin appreciation.” He indicated that the UK government could go further in that matter only with a Conservative-only administration.

But British Interior Minister Theresa May – Cameron’s fellow party member – on Monday openly pledged to scrap the Human Rights Act, should the Tories be re-elected in 2015, adding that such a promise is to be included in the party’s election manifesto. She also alluded that leaving the ECHR might be a future option for the UK.
